Write-In Products for Work Order Products

Please could you include the option to add 'write-in' products as Word Order Products, in the same was as can be done on Invoices. The business rationale for this is that there can be items that aren't individually stock controlled, but the business would still like to add to invoices. Having ...

Ability to roll up multiple Work Orders into one Invoice

All of our customers have asked for the ability to roll up multiple Work Orders into one Invoice for their clients. A lot of their clients have many Work Orders throughout a single month, and they would prefer to have one Invoice for all of them as opposed to one Invoice per Work Order. Ideall...

Thank you for your feedback.

We think this idea is interesting. If this idea gains more votes, we'll look more closely into what it would take to deliver this feature.

One area we'd be interested to understand in more detail is whether these customers are using an ERP system to handle their more complex invoicing requirements. It would seem like a simpler ask to satisfy once the data from FS is integrated into a financial system.

As always, we really appreciate your feedback. Keep the suggestions coming.

Thank you,

Display Duration and Duration to Bill fields in hours, not days or minutes

For example, looking at the editable grid “Work Order Services” Duration To Bill is displayed “3.25 hours” but when you click on it, it shows in minutes, that is "195" However, if you go to Work Order Service form itsel...

Add a completed y/n flag on the WO Incident

Thank you for your feedback. As this may not align to how a significant portion of our customers manage their work, for now, we will not implement this at the product level. Further, if this is important to how this is managed for a specific implementation, it is a simple enough addition to add.

Put weather data in the work order

As much of the work is done outdoors, and we know the date, time and geolocation of the work, we should show a "Card" with the target location weather, at the least. Many of our customers will not perform outdoor work during thunderstorms, or when temp is too hot or too cold. Having this weath...

Thank you for your feedback.

Since we support the concept of multiple Work Order Incidents per Work Order, this would likely cause some additional complexity. While it is not our expected scenario, it is possible that there are customers that use the Primary Incident field to apply multiple incident types. For those customers this would be a breaking change.

As this doesn't seem to be an overwhelming need, this would cause an unpredictable change for existing customers that have come to understand how it currently works, and that a customer that wants it to work in this way could consider adding additional validations to make the system operate in this way, we won't plan to make this change at the product level.

However, we welcome your thoughts on ways the system should be improved and we hope you will keep providing additional suggestions in the future.

Allow for Completed Bookings to Keep Work Order Open

Allow for work order bookings to be completed and be able to set the work order to open - unscheduled. The reason for this is when using Time Entries, a booking has to be completed to stop time. Then, a new booking is needed for capturing any other time that is spent for that work order. Busines...

Thanks, Rakesh. I think this idea could make sense. Before we commit to doing work on this concept, we'd like to see how the community feels about this concept. Let's give it some more time to collect more votes.
